I Am A Tree

This song is by Guided by Voices and appears on the album Mag Earwhig! (1997).

I am a tree, I show my age when I don't cry
I have the leaf that will fall off when wind blows by
Don't strip off my bark, I have been stripped of it before
‘Cause yesterday's gone and tomorrow has so much more in store

You are a bird, you're taking off in every way
Save the last word till there is nothing more to say
Don't interrupt, you know the squirrels are my friends
Get off my limb, for I will break before I bend

I'm planning to see
I'm planning to feel you all over me
So climb up my trunk and build on your nest
Come get the sap out of me
I am a tree
Fruitless and free
No symmetry
Touch me and see

I am a tree, counting my rings will do no good
I won't live long, but I would be with you if I could
When you take flight, remember me to one who lives there
Since you have flown, there's something special in the air

I'm planning to see
I'm planning to feel you all over me
So climb up my trunk and build on your nest
Come get the sap out of me
I am a tree
Fruitless and free
No symmetry
Touch me and see

I am a tree, yeah
Fruitless and free, yeah
No symmetry, yeah
